Folic Acid / Folate Vitamin Exclusion

September 4, 2018

By contract, pharmacy benefit coverage does not include multivitamin products. However, we have been covering several folic acid/folate vitamin products that should have been considered benefit exclusions. Beginning Nov. 1, 2018, these products will no longer be covered. As of that date, members who continue to have prescriptions filled for these products will pay the full price.

Please note: This exclusion does NOT apply to prenatal vitamins.

The following products will be excluded as of Nov. 1.
